Thank you for showing me what I'm worth

"I don't want to be just a number to you."

"You're not. I promise. I see potential in you."

Yeah. Ok. I'm worth so much more than what you gave me. And all these goals you have for yourself, all these "settling down" goals you have, they are all lies. They will never happen if you keep treating girls the way you do. No girl deserves to be lead on and used in the way you do. Grow up.

Thank you for making me realize that if a boy wants me, he will make the effort. 

I feel so stupid looking back at it now. So stupid. All the times I asked you to hang out and you could never make time for me. All the times I'd text you first because you made me believe you wanted something real with me. The moment you showed me I wasn't a priority, I should said whatever and left. You had me wrapped around your finger and you knew it. I even tried "ending things" with you in person and you couldn't even meet me for that. That's so immature. Up until my friends told you off, you still texted me and called me just the bare minimum so I couldn't get over you. You know the game that you play.

Thank you for showing me that I'm wanted

Even though I wasn't wanted by you in the way you made me believe, you still wanted me....and so do lots of other guys. I didn't need you to make me feel good about myself. There's plenty of other guys who would be happy to remind me of my worth every day. Luckily, my bad experience with you makes me look out for red flags and recognize them a lot sooner than before.

Long story short, stop treating girls like they're toys. You can't just use us then throw us away and act like we never happened. Not to mention, if all you want is sex, say that. Don't say, "I want to keep talking" "I really like you" "I see myself being really happy with you", then once we believe you and open up to you, you dip.

Grow up T.

You are wasting EVERYONE'S time.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
